Thanks for writing on this subject, Jason. This is an element of worship in which many churches/denominations participate, but seems more and more uncommon in “contempoary” evangelical churches today. You stated, “Time can be allotted in the worship service for individual confession of sin — either during an invitation or response time, or as quiet moments of private confession within the service.” As a worship pastor, I’m interested in how you have seen (or helped implement) a time of collective confession during the service. I’d be interested in how to better incoporporate confession in a church’s worship service that generally does not include this as part of its liturgy. (e.g. How do you incorporate Scripture? When does it take place? Who leads the time of confession? What is stated afterwards?) Thanks!
